Psalms 114

Geneva Study BibleGeneva Study Bible

Verse 1

114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of {a} strange language;

(a) Or, barbarous.

Verse 2

114:2 Judah was his {b} sanctuary, [and] Israel his dominion.

(b) The whole people were witnesses to his holy majesty in adopting them, and of his mighty power in delivering them.

Verse 4

114:4 The {c} mountains skipped like rams, [and] the little hills like lambs.

(c) Seeing that these dead creatures felt God’s power and after a sort saw it, much more his people ought to consider it, and glorify him for the same.

Verse 7

114:7 Tremble, thou {d} earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;

(d) Ought then his people to be insensible when they see his power and majesty?

Verse 8

114:8 Which {e} turned the rock [into] a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

(e) That is, miraculously caused water to come out of the rock in great abundance, Exodus 17:6.
